SENER Presents Paper on Hull Forms Fairing at COMPIT

The annual edition of the International Conference on Computer Applications and Information Technology in the Maritime Industries (COMPIT) took place this year from 12th to 14th of May in Redworth, UK.

During the event, Rodrigo Pérez presented a paper titled “An Innovative Approach for Hull Surface Fairing”, written by Rodrigo Perez and Mirko Toman, both from SENER.

The paper describes some new capabilities within FORAN,  a shipbuilding oriented CAD/CAM System developed by SENER, to improve the hull forms fairing.

The process starts from a set of preliminary hull surfaces, from scratch or after transforming existing hulls.

According to the paper’s findings, the new approach in FORAN allows intelligent shape transformation of objects composed by solids, surfaces, curves, points and meshes.

With the aid of these options in FORAN, the hull fairing is more controlled and the overall ship design process improved, according to SENER.
